I want to receive more tasks from S@H.
Ihave put more memory available (from 10Gb to 20Gb)does that help? I'm just saying because I notice some people, with almost the same PC as mine, get far more jobs. I also gave Seti 200% and Cosmology 100%, because with C@H I get more than enough work.
Is there anything I can do?

this is the 3 message about seti being low on work that you've posted. Did you not read what people said. You've even posted in the technical news where Matt explained that they are out of work. This is an ongoing problem.

If you are looking to keep your CPU buy while Seti is running low then do as they have suggested and get onboard with another BOINC project and crunch there as well.

receiving Work is random. If you have to many Cosmology WU's then your Boinc Manager will hold off downloading more work until you burn off a few Comsology WU's. This is a waiting game.
